CANADIAN rock group Cherry Suede will play at a charity concert to support the Rainbow Centre.

The band will play at the Ashcroft Arts Centre in Fareham on May 31 to raise money for the charity, which helps children and adults with neurological conditions.

Singer and guitarist Randy Young said: ‘When we heard about the Rainbow Centre and their crisis appeal we had no hesitation in helping out.

‘They provide a great service for a lot of people and we are just happy to be in a position to help.’

Centre events fundraiser Sarah Guild said: ‘This has got to be the most rock and roll way to help a charity out.

‘All proceeds from this event will go towards helping children with cerebral palsy and adults living with MS, Parkinson’s and symptoms of stroke.’

The centre launched a crisis appeal in March to raise £150,000 and avoid closure.

The concert will start at 7pm and tickets will be £10 if bought in advance or £12 at the door.
